Call for Grant Proposals: International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists Foundation
The IACP Foundation Research Committee is now seeking proposals for funding consideration. Proposals will be considered on a case-by-case basis and funding may be awarded in whole or in part. A maximum of $10,000 is available per proposal for research conducted at or in conjunction with an academic institution. The IACP Foundation also has set-aside funds to stimulate practice-based demonstration projects and compounding pharmacists are encouraged to apply for these $2,000 grants.
The Research Agenda for these two cycles includes three topic areas:
Beyond Use Date (BUD) -- expanded stability and beyond use date research for compounded preparations
Meta-Analysis -- produce literature evaluations of segments of pharmacy compounding on pain management using compounded preparations
Clinical Applications -- conduct practice-based therapeutic studies on compounded pain preparations
The deadline is December 31, 2013.
North American Spine Society Research Funding Program
Letter of Proposal: February 3, 2014
Grants (By Invitation Only): May 5, 2014
Traveling Fellowships: May 5, 2014
The North American Spine Society (NASS) is a multidisciplinary medical organization with over 7,300 physician and affiliated healthcare members in 72 countries dedicated to fostering the highest quality
ethical, value-based and evidence-based spine care by promoting education, research and advocacy. NASS members include over 32 spine-related specialties including orthopedics, neurosurgery, physiatry, pain management, research and other disciplines, including allied health professionals.
NASS strives to be a leading force in promoting and supporting spine research. Since 1989, NASS has funded more than $2.6 million in multidisciplinary spine-related research. NASS relies on the generosity of its membership, nonmember donors and the spine industry to provide funding for its research funds in support of
the highest quality, peer-reviewed research.
NASS supports basic, clinical and translational science performed with integrity. The goal is to improve quality
spine care for patients and understanding of underlying disorders. One way NASS achieves these goals is by funding grants and fellowships.
Types of funding available:
General NASS research grants provide funding for promising research projects by qualified investigators in the field of spine.
Funding amount and number of grants are at the discretion of the NASS Research Project Management Committee based upon merit of applications and amount of funding available each year. It is recommended that approved grant budgets not exceed $50,000 per year.
Young investigator grants
One to two Young Investigator Grants may be awarded each year. Principal investigators may be any age. MD applicants must be within five years of completion of training at the time of application; PhD applicants must be within five years of their post-doc training. Applicants may not have received previous grant funding from the NASS Research Project Management Committee. It is recommended that approved grant budgets not exceed $50,000 per year.
Nontraditional, Nonsurgical Treatment grants
The Nontraditional, Nonsurgical Treatment Grant is the result of a donation to research as part of the settlement of a class action lawsuit unrelated to NASS. This grant supports research of disc-related and/or neuropathic back pain by nonsurgical techniques.
These funds must be used for new, nontraditional methods of nonsurgical treatment of such back and neck pain and radiculopathy. If TNF-inhibitors other than etanercept are used in research and/or treatment funded, comparison studies using perispinal etanercept in at least as many research subjects or patients should be done.
Clinical Traveling fellowship
The Clinical Traveling Fellowship spans at least one month to be spent in three to five different medical centers studying spine techniques. The centers selected by the applicant should agree in writing to accept the applicant if he/she receives the Fellowship.
The Fellowship primarily covers the costs of travel and housing and typically ranges from $3,000-$7,000.
Research Traveling fellowship
The Research Traveling Fellowship spans at least five months at one medical center (other than the facility at which the applicant currently practices). The center selected by the applicant should have appropriate research facilities and agree in writing to accept the applicant if he/she receives the Fellowship. The Fellowship primarily covers the costs of travel and housing and typically ranges from $3,000-$7,000. If funding for the actual research project is needed, please apply for one of the research grants.
International Spine Intervention Society Call for Grant Proposals on High Priority Topics
ISIS is committed to funding research that will address important questions about the effectiveness of interventional spine procedures. The ISIS Research Committee is working to identify important gaps to be addressed in the interventional spine evidence base and encourage research in these areas. To this end, the committee has been working on developing study protocol outlines in areas where more research is likely to be meaningful to our field.
The first four priority areas where ISIS would like to see well-designed and executed research studies conducted are addressed in the following research protocol outlines:
• Does provocation lumbar discography cause premature disc degeneration or herniation?
• Efficacy of repeat TFESIs for radicular pain due to HNP
• Cervical medial branch radiofrequency neurotomy for whiplash induced cervical facet joint pain
• Prevalence estimate of extra-articular sacroiliac joint pain in chronic low back pain subjects using dual diagnostic lateral sensory branch blocks
Investigators interested in carrying out these studies and seeking ISIS grant funding should follow the ISIS procedures for submitting grant proposals, outlined below. Proposals are carefully vetted by the Research Committee, and funding of research proposals is approved at the semi-annual ISIS Board of Directors meetings.
Deadlines for submission are May 1st and November 1st.
The International Spine Intervention Society (ISIS) is dedicated to the advancement of the science of interventional spine care through its support of researchefforts.Thank you for donating your time towards helping us reach this goal, we look forward to receiving your Research Grant Application!

ISIS does not pay institutional overhead or indirect costs associated with its grants. Applications are to be reviewed and approved by the applicant’s institution prior to submission.
Research grant applications will be reviewed by the ISIS Research Committee using a 100-point scoring system. Proposals are evaluated on scientific merit (10 points), significance (15 points), originality (10 points), methodology (40 points),abstract and background information (10 points), personal and institutionaltrack record (5 points), and feasibility (10 points). Overall evaluation of the application from the perspectives of its level of evidence, relevance to the membership and our patients, potential impact on the related science, clinical decision making and health care policy, and value in terms of impact to budget ratio, will also be considered.
If a research grant application is submitted by an ISIS Research Committee member then he/she is excluded from its review process.
Once the study is completed and the final results are analyzed, it must be presented at the next ISIS Annual Scientific Meeting. It is also expected that the results be published in a peer-reviewed journal.
ISIS must be cited as the source of funding in all publications and presentations from the project or its results. A copy of all publications and presentations must be sent to the ISIS office.
Investigators are required to submit semi-annual research update forms and final researchfindings to the Research Committee Chair and Director of Research and Quality Improvement. If an investigator fails to do so, they will be denied any future funding and requested to return all funds distributed to them.
